New Lil Wayne Album Confirmed
After Weezy and the rock group announced pre-sale tickets for the tour earlier this week (May 6), fans bum-rushed Ticketmaster's website with hopes of reserving their place in line for the show before tickets officially go on sale this Friday. In the Tickets + Music section of the site, it's revealed that each purchase comes with an option to pre-order physical copies of either Blink-182 or Lil Wayne's forthcoming albums.
“Your ticket comes with a physical CD per order with your choice of Blink-182’s or Lil Wayne’s forthcoming album. Approximately 24-48 hours after purchase, you will receive an additional email with instruction on how to redeem your album. US/Canadian residents only. One CD per online order. Not valid for Fan to Fan Resale," reads Ticketmaster's message to customers.
The message is clear for die-hard fans who've been craving a follow-up to Tha Carter V. Last month (April 30), Wayne hit up his Instagram Story and posted an emoji of a coffin. Naturally, fans still believe that the cryptic post indicates that Weezy is ready to release his long-rumored Funeral album. The New Orleans native first revealed plans for the project three years ago. During an interview on The Nine Club podcast, Tunechi claimed he had a project called Funeral in his stash but never confirmed a release date for the project.
“Just make sure they know that Funeral is coming soon,” Wayne said in 2016. "That’s my music. Get your roses ready. I don’t have a release date, but I have a whole bunch of good news coming soon. If you’re a Wayne fan, I know we’ve been going through a lot of tough times right now, but if you are a Wayne fan, we about to hold our heads high soon."
